Claire Bloom

Its nearly 20 years since I graduated from KLC School of Design, and I’m still as obsessed with interiors as ever.  My design ethos remains to provide beautiful, liveable interiors for my clients and their families to enjoy now and for years to come.

We have network of trusted suppliers and trades people who bring to life our designs and we only work with suppliers and makers who are as detail obsessed and passionate about creating great design as we are. Through this network we can create bespoke products from artwork and murals to individual pieces of furniture to fit with any interior.

Typical Design Process
Stage 1. Briefing

We usually start with a client questionnaire in order to ascertain the basic details of a project, such as timescale and scope of work required.  Our projects range from a single item of custom furniture to whole property renovations.

We will arrange a site visit to go through this is more detail.  Although we often work from plan we ideally like to see a property or new build site in order to start formulating ideas and commence the design process.

Stage 2: Concept and Design Development

Once we have an understanding of your budget and design aesthetic we will come up with a mood book and/or sample board in order to start bringing the project to life.  See examples below of client mood books.   

We can also provide space planning, working drawings and CGI images for a project.  We often work alongside architects and structural engineers at this stage in order to make sure our designs are in accordance with building regulations and the structural needs of a building.

Stage 3: Procurement and Implementation

When the overall design has client approval Claire Bloom Interiors can manage the procurement and scheduling of a project.   We work closely with project managers and architects to ensure correct and timely delivery of all products.

This may include sourcing flooring materials, lighting, specialist finishes, bespoke joinery, sanitary ware, bathrooms, kitchens, bespoke furniture and soft furnishings.

Stage 4: Installation

We can personally install all furniture, accessories and artwork on site to make sure your property is personally styled upon completion.

Mood Book Examples

Below are examples of two Mood Books used on previous projects. These books work by encapsulating the essence of a design project. The books are made usually from on-line sources and existing imagery to act a visual reference for the client and convey what might be the overall aesthetic for a project.
